OP strategy?

5 access
3 wraith
3 ice wall
1 blaster
1 protector
2 kraken
1(or 2) battering ram
1 worm
Fill the rest with beam cannons. (About 13 at level 4,5 library)


Use the wraith to take out the black ice and protector. If they only have one sentry take that one too.

Then kraken and worm on one netconnect. And kraken on the other. I use the blaster and protector as backup in case I couldn't get a powerful turret or black ice neutralized.

Well at your level it probably is "unbeatable" but I think its time consuming for compilation. But ofc sometimes target is juicy enough to compesate for longer compiling time. But yes, I used the same strategy a lot too!
Good hacking!

Well lol I guess I shouldn't have said "OP" strategy because it's still beatable, for example if the kraken doesn't pass any defenses on the way to the core and the core is right beside the netconnect.

I don't care about the comp time since I've got other games to check up on in the meantime, any tips for this strategy?

kraken is good for early game beam canons are much better in the long run

Why? Kraken does much more damage, and you can always protect it with beam cannons.

Kraken can't be controlled by the attacker. The defender can manipulate where it goes.
Kraken also acts a lot like a spear - dangerous on the narrow front end but very vulnerable from the sides.

Defender has way more nodes to play with on higher levels so it becomes a lot easier to exploit those two weaknesses.


Idgaf about rep tho so I just throw the core outside like all of the other below level 30 degenerates lol

Hope Trickster does something about Kraken so that it's not completely useless when the core is out front and a complete steamroll when the core is in the back on lower levels.
